Constantly freezes!!! 2/5
This is my go to app for the best reporting of the news. However, the app freezes all the time lately.
A fresh view of things 5/5
I have enjoyed 60 Minutes for years (in different platforms according to the time). Their Originals and News are refreshing and instructive.
Good but biased 1/5
I like getting current news and respected the older generation of journalists who told it like it is without a liberal slant. It's hard to read news articles when 99% of them are against Trump. I don't see any news articles that say anything positive about him at all. I'm looking for TRUTH. You can't consistently paint Hillary Clinton with a 'no fault, never does anything wrong, honest and good paintbrush'.
Great app. Less annoying than CNN 3/5
I hate the fluff pieces, but this app gives you the full range of CBS news that one can READ, which I prefer. Too many videos (like CNN) are annoying and unwatchable in a lot of situations. CBS news is tops among main stream news. HOWEVER, with the latest update, one cannot read the article headlines…ever - not even when you are looking at the article in full screen. What the hell?
Gives the News Primary Position, Keeps Fluff to Minimum 5/5
Unlike some other news providers, CBS tends to keeps the news front and center, while covering a wide range of topics. Most other providers will skew the news to one political side or another, or engage in endless ‘family setting’ type of conversations that basically make the news people the big focus. The reporters and personalities should not be making news. Just present it to us, please. Don’t want to know about your new dog, husband, baby, favorite coffee, etc.
Used to work great 3/5
Since the latest update it only works half the time.
Watch Support 2/5
After updating, the app no longer works on my Apple Watch, which was the only reason I had the app. Currently it opens to the news feed but won’t allow any scrolling or tapping.
Crashes every time 1/5
Since the latest update, every time I attempt to open the app it crashes. Very seldom does it open where I can look at anything.
Cbs is on the spot! 5/5
I can count on news first! The stories hit and are written with a lot of facts to keep me informed.
Great app 5/5
I can watch CBS news anytime I want.
Honest News by Professionals 5/5
By David Coincon
Great app for reading the news. Honest reporting. Great news people.
Faithful Closed Captions 5/5
STREAMS, LIVES AND VIDEOS PROVIDED CLOSED CAPTIONED! THANK YOU!
Love this app, given in-depth analysis of world news
ALWAYS RELIABLE 5/5
By 1 royalty
Thank You All so very much for providing free streaming news! I TOTALLY relied ONLY ON CBSNY on September 11th and for TWO (2) Solid weeks thereafter! && You're Still Leading!
You are the BEST TECH PIONEERING NEWS SOURCE🙌🏼👏🏽👏🏾👏🏿
Great App, But... 4/5
By Eric Jordan
The app is fantastic, but here are the two things I do not like:
1. In the middle of a very interesting article there will be an abrupt cut to breaking news.
2. The same ad will play multiple times during commercial “breaks”.
Otherwise the app is a brilliant example of how all networks should be distributing content.
Thankful for a free news outlet 24-7. I use it often for weather updates and live footage.
Keeps crashing when I open 1/5
I used to like this app but now it won’t work. Each time I try and open it I see the CBS logo and then it crashes and closes. I have the most up to date version. Hope the developers read these reviews.
Starts playing itself 2/5
Starts playing itself without the app even being opened! This has happened on at least two occasions. Would have to open the app and close it so it would stop playing. Even pressing Apple’s pause button on the Control page of my iPad would not stop it from playing.
Best news source, good app 3/5
CBS is my go to source for news. The app doesn’t work well with video or slideshows both usually fail). Otherwise, it’s fine.
I wish some CBS anchors were so opinionated 😐
I appreciate this app, especially the CBSN video feed.
App needs work 2/5
By troubled viewer
Constantly having issues, I have an iPhone and most often app opens and then closes. More trouble then its worth. Fix the issues or just remove it.
Love it 5/5
By Chuck Hoover
Use it all day!!!!
I visit several news sites and I find this one, CBS, the easiest to maneuver around on and find what I am looking for. Great job to the developers of this app!
Simple, clean format 5/5
I like the simplicity of this app. It’s clean and not congested. No bells and whistles to distract. It’s the news, pure and simple.
You are too liberal and your news is unfairly slanted and and opinionated. 1/5
Work on factual information I do not want to know what you think or feel about a situation but report the truth.
Crashing on iPad Pro
Best news app 5/5
Best app for live free news !!!
Not thrilled 2/5
By cathy axe
I’m a big fan of CBS News, but the app has problems. It’s unreliable and, as a result, frustrating to use
Careful on the commercials 2/5
I was watching the reading of victims names for 9/11 and in the middle of reading the names the app broke for commercial. I know the app has to make money and I’m generally cool with ads but come on - is an ad encouraging customers who probably don’t have pancreas problems to buy pancreas medicine that much more important than honoring the victims of 9/11?
Thanks for this. 5/5
I like the format used for this app. It works without bugs or problems. My favorite parts are 60 Minutes and the live broadcast.
Too much repetition 3/5
By Trying to stay informed
Too much repetition. News stories are excellent as expected.
5 Stars for CBS 5/5
By Tasha N TN
Of all the networks available to us, in this day & time, CBS has got to be so high on the mountain that the ones below can’t quite determine to just follow suite. It is the only network subscription that I would consider. But no one needs a subscription to enjoy CBS programs or the CBS app.
Annoying and Repetitive commercial will drive you insane! 3/5
I like the news and the app, but the commercials they choose to play are SO repetitive and annoying! I watch the nightly news every night and during the 20 minute broadcast, CBS plays the same commercials over and over again, driving me crazy. In the period of 20 minutes, the Chase commercial with Red Hong Yi is played at least 4 times and the Farmers commercial is played the same amount!! I can’t stand hearing the same thing over and over again!
Live Streaming 5/5
For the most part this is truly live reporting! Some video repeats but live people with live news most of the time. Most online news reads like a newspaper or video clips, not this one.

Fast professional truthful CBS.
By Sergeant NJ
If only I could watch the early morning news on here too. Otherwise it’s great!
News at my fingertips. 5/5
By B. Ird
I enjoy having access to live news at no cost.
Needs side by side and PIP 1/5
I’d like to be able, to do side by side and also put the video in a small pop up window like most other apps can do.
I’ve had it with the cable news, with the exception of “Shepard Smith Reporting”. The CBSN Network truly provides a filter-free “straight news” reporting in this age of opinionated and tabloid journalism. Kudos, CBS News!
John McCain 5/5
By I dont have a nickname. AMC
Shame on Donald Trump!!! For not going to Senator John McCain’s funeral procession.
“SHAME ON YOU DONALD TRUMP” You are
a “DISGRACE TO OUR COUNTRY”.
“JOHN MCCAIN WAS A GREAT MAN” who served our country well. “SHAME ON YOU DONALD TRUMP, SHAME ON YOU “
Crashes upon opening 3/5
This is frustrating because I want to watch September 1sts Senator John McCain’s Funeral on the CBSN Live Stream but cannot, guess I will use my cable tv service. However that’s why I use your free CBSN Service. Please fix
WAS a good app 1/5
Since last OS update it crashes. They don’t seem to be in a hurry to fix it.
CBS Trusted 5/5
Classiest network there is.
Refresh Lacking 1/5
I enjoy the Morning Rundown. In the past month when I access I get a commercial and nothing else. I check back regularly and nothing but commercial. WHAT.
News good photos with any captions on iPad 2/5
What’s point of picture gallery of hurricanes with no mention of when, where, etc.
I use CBS News app everyday 5/5
By The big builder
I use the CBS news app everyday multiple times. Thanks for making this service available. The pace of today’s world makes it imperative we stay tuned.
CBS app 4/5
Works well, no streaming issues like Safari. Could be easier finding old news stories
I used to like , than got pop up ads 3/5
Great news coverage overall, but all of a sudden I’m getting full screen pop ads, I’m get rid of this app...bye, bye CBS.
